DECLARATION

in memory of the Tree Of Life synagogue victims
Oct. 27, 2018

Today let there be sounded one sorrow,
sorrow from the depths of all loving,
sorrow in the unity of all caring,
sorrow for the lost and for the hurting,
and may it sound as a summons and call.

Today let there be constructed one city,
built of the bricks of compassion,
grounded on the bedrock of justice,
opening its doors toward kindness,
with welcome in place of a wall.

Today let there be united one people,
hearts beating one blood through all bodies,
hands holding hands in one commitment,
heads turned to the light of one horizon,
the horizon of wholeness and peace meant for all.
